§ Mr. Dudley Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what estimate he has of the effect on the prices paid by the customer as the result of his proposal 601W to limit the pack size of products containing aspirin and paracetamol to 25 tablets.
§ Dr. Owen
Products of this kind are currently available in packs of 25 tablets or less and the pack size restriction on General Sale List products included in the proposals for implementing Part III of the Medicines Act 1968 would not justify any change in their prices. Larger packs will continue to be available over-the-counter in retail pharmacies.
§ Mr. Grylls
asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he will list the present recommended retail price per tablet of Anadin tablets, Phensic tablets, Aspro tablets and Disprin tablets, with reference to (a) the pack size nearest to 100 tablets and (b) the pack size nearest to 25 tablets.
